Rebirth of a Classic California Craftsman Bungalow

We've been doing a lot of restoration work on this beautiful craftsman bungalow. The clients originally had us build a custom set of wood bookcases with pillars, styled after the Arts and Crafts aesthetic, that separated the living and the dining room areas. The project then morphed into helping the clients bring this classic bungalow back to as close to its original condition as possible. Check out the progress below.

Brick columns were removed and replaced with custom-built pillars


Side view of the pillars with reconstructed bases and concrete caps


Another side view of the house


All windows had been re-roped with vintage weights


Installed cedar shingle siding on an addition in the back of the house to match the original siding of the house


Created matching tiered concrete steps for both back doors


Reconstructed the front door with Arts & Crafts-styled window panels



Created a period appropriate ribbon driveway
